How To Calculate NEET 2020 Score & Rank?
Candidates can calculate their NEET score using NEET 2020 Answer Key and response sheets. NEET 2020 provisional answer key will be released soon. Candidates will have to compare the answer key and response sheets to calculate the NEET Score. To begin let’s have a look at the NEET 2020 marking scheme below:
- – Every correct answer, +4 mark is awarded.
- – For every incorrect answer, 1 mark is deducted from the total score.
- – No marks are deducted for unattempted questions.
- – Physics and Chemistry carry 180 marks each. Whereas the Biology section is for 360 marks.
- – Total Marks = 180 MCQs X 4 = 720 Marks
The formula to calculate the NEET score is as follows:
NEET Score = (Number of Correct Attempts X 4) – (Number of Incorrect Attempts X 1)
The NEET calculated score is the raw score and these scores are converted to NEET Percentile Scores. Thereafter, based on the NEET cut off the All India Ranks and Category Ranks are prepared.
